AWS9 (506) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle. Solid enough hazy golden pour with decent frothy white head. Hops are certainly present in the aroma, but fainter than I expected - bracing for the 7.1% alcohol hit... which doesn’t really come. Exceptionally smooth and drinkable. Touches of citrus. Perhaps doesn’t have the hop explosion you’d like out of an IPA, but a very, very drinkable beer.

tom10101 (3102) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Bottled on 23-04-2014. Hazy/murky golden/orange with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is herbal/floral with grapefruits and biscuity malt. Taste is herbal/floral with biscuity malt, grapefruits and moderate sticky bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry and sticky finish. Very good IPA, but a tad less tasty than most The Kernel beers I had so far. Good drinkability despite the sticky bitterness.
